Musicians wanted for 2017 Ross Street Patio concert series

Deadline for submissions is March 31

There is an open call for musicians wanting to perform this summer on the Ross Street Patio in Red Deer.

The City of Red Deer Culture Services department is looking for entertainers for the 2017 summer concert series. The featured dates are June 8, July 14, Aug. 11 and 25.

Performers in all genres of music are invited to submit applications. Solo artists and bands will be assessed based on the quality and originality of performances, as well as audience interaction and engagement.

Performances will be paid along a negotiable fee range — from $300 to $500 for a one-hour opening act, and from $700 to $1,000 for a two-hour feature act. Professional sound equipment and technical support will be provided by the city, but artists are responsible for their instruments, amps and travel expenses.

Submissions should include an electronic press kit, including bio, photos, etc (hard copies are acceptable), and a two-track, or five-minute, audio, video or web link. Also, a list of recent performances and professional and social media sites should be provided. These materials will not be returned.
